6th Annual Harvest Moon Dinner
benefiting the Athens Land Trust
Saturday, October 19, 2013
at the Bennett Family Farm
The Harvest Moon Dinner was created as an intimate dinner among friends celebrating the landscapes of our community with great food and wine. This year’s event features Chef Peter Dale of The National and Dean Neff, formerly of Five and Ten, on the Bennett Family Farm in Walton County.
The 110-acre farm, which is half pasture and half wooded has two springs that flow directly into the Appalachee River. Russell Bennett is a longtime ALT supporter and raises grass fed beef and pastured hens that have been served in restaurants in Atlanta and Athens including Empire State South, Bacchanalia, Farm 255, Restaurant Eugene, Local Three, and Holeman and Finch. His grassfed beef will be part of the menu for this year’s Harvest Moon Dinner.
The farm house on the property dates back to 1817 and was originally called Evans Quarter. It was a stagecoach stop and tavern. The barn is from the early 1900s and was recently renovated into a loft apartment and entertainment area. Most of the materials used in the barn renovation are original to the barn including heart pine lumber, cedar tree posts, and fence posts.
